Dear Sir/Madam,

I am graduate student completing an MS in Petroleum Engineering at The University of Tulsa. I am writing to inquire about petroleum engineering opportunities within your firm. As my attached resume mentions, I will graduate in the summer, 1999.

As you will note from the enclosed resume, I majored in petroleum engineering and have done significant research in drilling, primarily drilling mud preparation (mud rheology and hydraulics) and hole cleaning. This background as well as several chemical engineering courses, including petrochemical and petroleum refining, has motivated me to work in a technical environment and prepared me to be flexible for any job in a complex petroleum industry.

My background and career goals seem to match your job requirements well. I am confident that I can perform the job effectively. Furthermore, I am genuinely interested in working for your company. Your firm has an excellent reputation and comes highly recommended.

My other major fields of interest in petroleum engineering are in drilling, drilling muds (preparation, rheology, hydraulics and management), exploration & production, well completion (wireline & testing), process control, petrochemicals/petroleum refining and research & development. I have an international background, having lived in India and United States.

Please consider my request for a personal interview to further discuss my qualifications. You may contact me at (918) 631-5168, the below address or via the internet at "". If I am not available, leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Yours sincerely,


Rishi Babu Adari
